DMS IT funding for Trusts
NHS England and NHS Improvement (NHSE&I) is making funding available to Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) so that all acute, community and mental health NHS trusts in England can support IT solutions or software licenses for the NHS Discharge Medicines Service (DMS).
The funding will enable more community pharmacies to receive DMS referrals via a structured, electronic message instead of via the more manual route (e.g. by NHSmail message). This should increase the overall volume of DMS referrals.
